One thing which always creates a topic of discussion is how to auto follow Twitter users. Social media experts suggest it’s a good practice to follow back new followers.
On the other hand, many experts also say it’s good to maintain a Twitter profile where you follow only selected and targeted users.
On Twitter, everyone wants to get followed, but making this process automated may lead to many problems like you auto following spam and automated Twitter profiles.
However, you can easily filter these bogus profiles from your Twitter timeline if you are using tools like Tweinds or Tweetdeck.
Twitter is a free service that lets you keep in touch with people through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to two simple questions:
- Where are you?
- What are you doing?
It’s suggested to follow your new followers to create a better relationship with them, and if you are a power Twitter user, you might want to automate your Twitter profile as much as possible.
Auto Follow Twitter Users Without Lifting A Finger
Here I’m talking about a tool called SocialOomph which used to be known as Tweetlater. This service is more than just the typical auto follow tool. But for the sake of this tutorial, we will discuss just the auto follow feature.
This tool has a free and a pro version. The free version lets you auto follow on Twitter, and I have explained the whole process below.
SocialOomph provides you with functionalities like scheduling of your tweets, sending a welcome message to your followers, and, of course, allows you to auto follow.
Go to SocialOomph, register, and log in. Now go to “Manage Account” and click on the Twitter account you want to use for auto following your followers.
After “Follow-Back”, click on the box that says: Follow-back new people who follow the account.
So, once you have enabled this feature, it not only auto follows new Twitter followers, but also allows you to configure sending an automated message to these followers.
This will help you to add personalization, and you can also nudge followers to click through to your landing page.
I usually ask new followers to connect on my Facebook fan page, but you can have your own strategy.
Speaking of new Twitter followers, you can connect with me on Twitter @denharsh.
